Failure - Poem by Tina Dang
Why must you look down upon me?
Even when I try my best you can’t look past to see
I‘ve tried so many times, so many ways crying out loud,
But I’m never good enough for you, of me you’ll never be proud.
Why must you see only the worse in me, my flaws?
I don’t know why I waste my time to get a pat on the back or an applause.
Just when I think I’m doing fine,
Then an image of you putting me down runs thru my mind.
I’ll never be anything more than just a failure to you,
Cuz you’ll always see every imperfection in everything I do.
I’m not sorry for not being able to live up to your expectations,
I’m my own person, my life shouldn’t be filled with this misery and complications.
Therefore to relieve me from my stress, I’ll cut you out of my life using process of elimination.
That’s sad that our relationship had to end this way, over a breakdown in communication.
